The wrestling world has been abuzz with rumors about WWE’s recent “hiring freeze” amidst major changes within the company. After Vince McMahon’s surprising return and the acquisition of WWE by the Endeavor Group, fans and wrestlers alike have been eager to know what’s going on behind the scenes. And now, Fightful Select has uncovered some shocking details.

According to their latest report, WWE’s higher-ups have confirmed that a hiring freeze has been in place since January. Even though there have been no publicly announced main roster signings, it seems that Triple H, who took over the reins of WWE after McMahon’s retirement in 2022, has been secretly reaching out to prospective signings for the company. Despite the ongoing corporate moves, Triple H and his team have been keen to talk to free agents, with recent IMPACT Wrestling returnee Nick Aldis reportedly being informed of WWE’s interest in him.

However, the freeze has not stopped there. Multiple free agents have suggested that WWE has stopped responding to them, and a higher-up in the company acknowledged that while over 20 main roster talents were hired in the latter half of 2022, none have been hired yet in 2023. This has left many talents and staff anticipating the usual post-WrestleMania cuts in the near future.

But the plot thickens. It seems that WWE’s interest in certain talents has not waned, despite the freeze. Names like EJ Nduka and former NJPW star Jay White were reportedly in talks with WWE, but White ultimately signed with AEW due to a communication error on WWE’s part. Furthermore, WWE is said to be eyeing NJPW stars Hikuleo and Tama Tonga, as well as former SmackDown Women’s Champion Naomi for potential signings.

Intriguingly, Triple H has been “adamant” about keeping these talks under wraps, with strict instructions not to leak any details. Nevertheless, William Regal and Bruce Prichard have also been reaching out to talent, although specific names have not been disclosed.

With all the corporate changes and rumors swirling, it’s clear that WWE is undergoing a major shift. Will the hiring freeze be lifted soon? Who will be the next big signing? Only time will tell. Stay tuned for more updates on this developing story. Don’t miss out on any of the action!

What do you make of WWE’s Hiring Freeze? Will it end soon?
